PALM SPRINGS, CA – White Party Palm Springs is the largest gay dance music festival in North America. In 2012, it expands into a whole new dimension the weekend of April 6-9 as music-lovers, party-goers, DJs and performers from every corner of the globe converge for the ultimate spring escape; set against sun-drenched mountain vistas and spectacular desert skies.
Now is the time to prepare at: www.jeffreysanker.com
Building on his reputation for the best cutting-edge and breakthrough talent – that have included performances from Lady Gaga, Robyn, Ke$ha and Jennifer Lopez -White Party founder & producer Jeffrey Sanker has set his sights on raising the bar even higher.
“White Party 2012 is going to be a 3-D experience,” said Sanker. “Bigger and bolder LED and visual displays and immense stage and platform structures designed to stretch the limits of your imagination, the only lenses needed are your shades.”
This year’s line-up includes some of the world’s most innovative icons in dance music, including Grammy nominees Dave Audé and Rosabel, as well as Billboard #1 remixers/producers Moto Blanco (UK), Wayne G, Manny Lehman, Hector Fonseca, Andy Almighty and red-hot rising stars such as DJs Grind, Pornstar, Chad Jack and more.
Superstar Mary J. Blige will take the stage Saturday, April 7 at the Palm Springs Convention Center for White Party 3D 2012.
At Saturday’s largest pool party in the desert, Grindr will celebrate its 3rd Year Anniversary and 3 million members. Get your official WP2012 Grindr profile photo taken and expect the unexpected as the action heats up poolside at the Renaissance. DJ Grind starts things off and then UK powerhouse DJ/Producer Andy Almighty (Almighty/7th Heaven/Club Junkies) makes his White Party debut. Arguably the most prolific force in gay dance music, Andy’s highly-anticipated set should be nothing short of legendary.
Australian global DJ sensation, NERVO, (NervoNation/SirusXM) is confirmed to headline Saturday night’s White Party, their first appearance at a gay music festival. Definitely the ones to watch, these outrageously beautiful and talented blond Aussie twins have collaborated with such heavy hitters as Afrojack and David Guetta and recently rocked IMS at Ibiza and Winter Music Conference.
X-Factor winner Melanie Amaro will be performing at the Sunday T-Dance/Outdoor festival sponsored by SBE & The Abbey at White Party Park from 3 to 10pm across from the Convention Center.
Sunday T-Dance continues its reign as the largest outdoor dance event of its kind in the world. This year’s top notch line-up includes: DJs Dave Audé, Manny Lehman and Moto Blanco (UK), along with surprise entertainment. Celebrate under the warm afternoon desert sun and enjoy the panoramic view from atop the world-famous Ferris Wheel. The choreographed fireworks finale will light up the evening sky this year featuring an exclusive soundtrack remixed by Dave Audé just for this occasion.
Advance tickets and passes are on sale now. Book host hotel accommodations at the Palm Springs Renaissance and be with all the boys at the home of the pool parties, just steps away from all White Party main events. For more information, reservations and tickets/passes, visit: www.jeffreysanker.com.
